What is Thurston Thrives?
Thurston County Board of Health is
joining with community leaders from business, education,
city government, neighborhoods, local charities, social and
medical care groups to honor what we do for our families'
health, to celebrate our collective efforts, and find ways
to do even better together. They call it Thurston
Thurston Thrives is a project aimed at bringing together
community partners of Thurston County around the work we
share. One of the main focuses of the project is to
ensure that our county is thriving through the collaboration
on the public health and social services that we bring to
our community, to honor those who make Thurston County a
healthy and safe place to live, and to align efforts to make
an even bigger difference in the health of our community.
The purpose is to engage our leaders across the board to
move forward an action agenda we can all believe in to
improve health for all Thurston
|When it comes to health, our
community is recognizing the many ways we can
promote it in our daily lives. We can build
health into how we live, learn, work and play.
How can you participate?
Improving health is not a mystery,
really. It takes effort not just from doctors, and not
just from government. It takes action by all parts of
the community. Some of this we commonly associate with
health: Medical care, social services and the environment.
But it is also things we do not always think about as
health: Education, jobs and housing.
We will be reaching out across our community to achieve
these connections and to align efforts behind common goals.
We want to build on what is already going on. What is
new in Thurston Thrives is keeping better in touch with each
other's progress, and supporting each other's work.
Everyone has a part to play in the health of our community -
we hope you will join us to engage this strategic approach.
Because a healthy community is something we all believe in.
